According to Billboard, Sade is set to top the album chart next week as the new set Soldier of Love is projected to sell between 375,000 to 400,000 copies. A year back, Taylor Swift’s Fearless moved 92,000 copies the same week. As WelcheMusic previously wrote, Sade hasn’t released any new albums since Lovers Rock in 2000. The album has so far shifted 3.9m copies in the US.
The lead single “Soldier of Love” hasn’t made any serious impact on the charts. So far, it has peaked at No.58 on the Hot 100 chart. It did manage to top the Billboard Jazz Songs chart. The song has also made the top 40 in Sweden.
